Metal Legend, Dave Mustaine has revealed that he’s been diagnosed by his medical team with throat cancer.

The Megadeth lead singer and guitarist, aged 57 years old, announced the news on his Facebook account yesterday, June 17th.

Mustaine also said that treatment is underway. The metaller wrote underneath a photo of himself: “I’ve been diagnosed with throat cancer,” “It’s clearly something to be respected and faced head on — but I’ve faced obstacles before.”

I’m working closely with my doctors, and we’ve mapped out a treatment plan which they feel has a 90% success rate. Treatment has already begun.”

“Unfortunately, this requires that we cancel most shows this year. The 2019 Megacruise will happen, and the band will be a part of it in some form. All up to date information will be at as we get it. Megadeth will be back on the road ASAP.”
